Green Drinks founder Margaret Lydecker visited Iceland a few days this week giving's founders an opportunity to meet her. In short it was like meeting a good old friend wich proves ones again how common goals can unite people across the globe.

Margaret got this, back in 2002, crazy idea of organizing meetings of people who want to make the world more environmentally friendly in one way or the other. It seemed to her at the time to be a good idea to try to get those people to meet, exchange ideas and give each other a boost thus magnifying the possibilities of finding solutions to the multible problems we face as a community of earthlings.

Last winter, the first Green Drinks gathering took place in Iceland, organized by Charlotte Ólöf Jónsdóttir Ferrier and GAIA  (The student association for the sudents of „Evironmental and Natural Resource“ at he University of Iceland) Green Days closing party, See article on
